Classic. Traditional. Black Tie. These are just a few of the words Rachel used to describe her inspiration for her Belmont Country Club wedding to Billy, but Person + Killian Photography was there, and we think it was all of those things and more!

The entire event took place at the Belmont Country Club in Belmont, MA, which, of course, made a lovely backdrop for pictures.  The lush golf greens served as a gorgeous contrast to the rich cabernet bridesmaid gowns and the crisp, black tuxedoes worn by the groomsmen.

We enjoy all of the weddings we do, but one thing we really loved about this one was the way in which Rachel and Billy were able to incorporate so many traditions into their special day.

It’s becoming more and more common for brides and grooms to see one another before the ceremony, but it’s definitely not every day that they have a traditional Bedeken ceremony, as well! (For those of you who aren’t familiar with that, it is a traditional Jewish ceremony where the groom identifies his bride and then puts the blusher on her to make sure he is marrying the right woman.)

Rachel and Billy were wed under a traditional chuppah, and the couple was also able to incorporate the glass-breaking, Tish, and Ketubah ceremonies into their celebration.

And of course, their reception would not have been complete without the time-honored Horah!

Thank you, Rachel and Billy! We had a wonderful time sharing your beautiful day and capturing all of these special moments!
